Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support children who are vulnerable to underachievement and to support diminishing achievement differences.
Pupil Premium is finding which the government have allocated to pupils in the following categories:
- pupils who have applied for and meet the criteria for free school meals or have been eligible for free school meals within the last 6 years
- pupils in local authority care
- pupils from a military family
This money is allocated to school budgets based on the number of pupils in school who are in the above categories.
At Nether Green Infant School we decide how the money should be spent and allocate it to support pupils in reaching their potential both academically and socially.
Parents and Carers who think their child is eligible for Pupil Premium may apply to the Council by contacting Sheffield City Council Free School Meals team on 0114 273 5705 or look at the website www.sheffield.go.uk . You can collect a form from our school office too.
You can also see more information on Pupil Premium and free school meals on the 'Parents' page of this website.
